Adebayor set for Crystal Palace debut

Pardew plans to give the former Arsenal striker his Crystal Palace debut against Bournemouth on Tuesday.

Adebayor joined the Eagles on a free transfer until the end of the season last Tuesday.

“We’ve kind of pencilled (Adebayor) in to be involved on Tuesday, so we’ll have to wait and see. I think there’s a good chance,” said Pardew.

Pardew has previously stated that he was worried about Adebayor’s lack of match-fitness.
